Healthy and Safe Kitchens 
Jeska went to Igerera B to rebuild a stove that was poorly built by the participants on their own during the lock down. In the previous visit she found this complaint that the stove was poorly built whereby it would use a lot of firewood and take longer to cook food. This had forced the owner to a bond on it because it was ineffective. Jeska had left them with an assignment to prepare the materials that they will use to rebuild the stove. She found four members from the community waiting for her with the owner of the home Mr. Kakuku Laston. They had all the materials required for building stoves in place. Jeska asked the participants to mix and stamp the dirt that will be used to rebuild the stove that was poorly built. They stamped the dirt as they observed social distance that is three people stamped at ago, later moved out of the dirt and others also started stamping too. Jeska retaught them how to measure the banana stem that will create a hole where the big cooking pot will sit. She emphasized on this because the major problem was the banana stem used previously was too long which made fire to take to longer to heat the saucepans thus food took longer to get ready. She asked the group to dismantle the previous stove that was poorly built and rebuilt a new one while the participants watched as she explained the whole process. When the participants show a complete stove they also understood the mistakes they had done . They also said that the stove they had built by themselves was totally different from what Jeska built for them. Jeska thanked them for having tried to build a stove on their own even if it was not well done. She encouraged them to remain practicing because practice makes perfect. The few participants thanked kibo through Jeska for loving them, always being patient with them despite the mistakes they made. The owner of the stove was also excited when she saw a complete stove and thanked kibo for uniting her with her group because she was feeling left out due to having an effective stove. Jeska asked them to stay working together in order to achieve development.
